Once you have removed the slide panel and can see the back of the screen you first need to remove the connector ribbon, it is attached near the bottom of the phone. Just like disconnecting the first end of it this end is also removed by popping it off.

Once it has been lifted up slightly you will be able to slide the bottom half of the green circuit board located below the screen off of the phone by pulling down on it. Then you will be able to finish popping the screen out. Get a new screen and replace it. Follow the instructions in reverse to reassemble the phone with your new screen.
